Try our Lake Powell wake skate lessons by professional team members that can take your riding to the next level. Wakeskate lessons in Lake Powell are generally easier after you learned how to wakeboard and wakesurf. Wakeskating is like a skateboard on water, and Lake Powell offers the most beautiful and calm canyons to allow the best conditions. Lake Powell wakeskate lessons are great for people who love skateboarding, and want more difficulty in a water sport. Wakeskating will take more balance and patients than learning other water sports, but is well worth the time. It feels unusual not to have the board strapped to your feet while wake skating, and the board is a lot more squirrely than wakeboarding; which mean more crashes! The nice thing is; wrecks generally don’t hurt. The perfect boat speed for beginners is between 15-19 mph; once you hit the intermediate and advanced stages the Lake Powell boat instructor will travel 19-25 mph on your wakeskate lessons.
Have the boat slowly moving before you try to get up. The pressure of the water is what will keep the wake skate on the bottom of your feet. If the wake sport boat is at a complete stop, then the wakeskate will lie flat across the water. The ski boat should be going a little faster than you would with a wakeboard so you can get up before losing balance. You need to try to get up while the boat is pulling you, however. Instead of lying back and waiting for the boat to lift you up, try to pull yourself up a little with the wakeboard rope.
After you get up stay inside the wake, and adjust your feet on the wakeskate until your comfortable. Then learning how to carve by bending your knees slightly, and leaning one way to travel one direction; and then leaning the other way on the board to go the other direction. Once you feel comfortable on your wakeskate lesson at Lake Powell by carving within the wake, you can go over the wake by bending you knees as you cross. From there it just takes time and practice. We service all marinas in Lake Powell with wake skate lessons including Wahweap Marina, Antelope Point Marina, Bullfrog marina, Halls crossing Marina, and Dangling Rope Marina. Bring as many people as you want for the same price and do different water sport lessons all in the same boat charter!
